No Comments on October Employee of the Month 2018!

Congratulations to our October Employee of the Month, Shirla Streit.

Shirla is beginning her 25th year as a nurse at the Good Life Center, congratulations!  She began her career as an RN Charge Nurse in this facility straight out of nursing school in 1993.  She is and has been a very loyal and dependable employee, always works her shifts and willing to help out whenever needed. She is a huge part of our knowledge base and a talented professional nurse.

Shirla not only works full time as a nurse, but is also Mom to 3 boys. Twins Colby and Alex are 16 years old and are 10th graders at Arnold this fall, and 13 year old Brendan who is a 7th grader this fall.  She also lives with partner Shane and 1 very solid, excitable boxer named Bella.

Shirla’s hobbies include reading, although we are not sure when she finds the time, and crafting.   

Shirla’s co-workers nominated her and said, “Shirla is a true team player. She worked 6 am to Midnight on September 14th, 2018 due to staffing issues.  She has hardly ever called in and will trade shifts if someone needs to work a different day, and if it fits her schedule.  She always smiles and treats the residents as they are her #1 priority, even when she is having her own problems.

Shirla always has a smile and the residents love her.  She can make a dreary day become sunny and bright with her laughter. We are proud to have her on our team.

No Comments on September Employee of the Month

Congratulations to our September Employee of the Month, Vicky Hendricks!

Vicky began working in this facility in 1985.  She worked in various jobs throughout those years including Nursing, Restorative, Resource Development /Marketing and Administration. In September of 2011, Vicky graduated with her Business Degree with LTC Administration. On November 1, 2012, she took over the Administrator job at CGLC under the direction of Rural Health Development.

Vicky lives in the country by Oconto with her husband Neil. They have 4 children and 5 grandchildren. Vicky loves spending time with her children and grandchildren. She spends any spare time she can find riding her horse, hunting, fishing, camping and gardening.

Vicky’s co-workers nominated her 3 times this month.  These nominations from co-workers included, “On the day of the backed up pipes, Vicky took a vacuum into residents rooms and helped clean up the mess.  She is a great example of pride for keeping this facility looking tip top!”  And this nomination, “When dietary staff was late, Vicky came to help.”  And this nomination, “Vicky stayed late to complete admission paperwork and help the Resident and Family get settled!  She really stepped up and made a difference for her staff and our Residents!  Thank-you, Vicky!”

“I am very honored and humbled by this award. I work with the hardest working, most compassionate people that deserve this award every day. Helping to provide a place for our residents to call home, or to come to rehabilitate is rewarding enough for us. We do not do this for the glory, we do it for the heart. We do it for the feeling that you get when you know you have made a difference in someone’s life. Not everyone can leave work every day and say they have that feeling. We can. I thank those that gave us the opportunity to serve the community in this capacity. What a wonderful place to live!”
